PDC has a committed, passionate team who expertly and with care and concern mentor and instruct my daughter. Her dance skills and love of this art have grown exponentially under their instruction. I recommend AJ and his team without hesitation.

I'm going into my fourth year with PDC, I've been with them from day #1 and I couldn't have made a better decision to transfer studios - a big thanks to Mr. A.J. for being that true teacher/friend that he is - my family and I can't imagine dancing without him!!! WE LOVE PDC!

I love that the studio is new and clean. I also like that it is a smaller studio and the individual attention and family feel that goes with it.
